"The Big Green Gathering is an award winning festival. It features just about all you can image in the areas of sustainability, organic and eco-friendly living. It’s THE festival for entertainment and education for sustainability. From music, farming, crafts, ethical campaigns, permaculture, markets, fairground fun, sustainable homes, organic food, a village green kids area, green enterprise and business fields this festival has all the resources to learn and enjoy green living."
I haven't been to a festival for years. I finally decided it was time to go, Angel is old enough to enjoy it, we had a group of six of us and two little girls, one large tipi and lots of fun to be had.
We chose the Big Green Gathering, because it is the largest 'Green' festival in Europe and of course we wanted to support this. It is also child friendly and music shuts down at 12am, giving you at least some chance of a good nights sleep.
The festival is generated by solar and wind power and every possible eco way of running you could think of. It's been going for the last 15 years and every year becomes more and more eco friendly.
So why am I not packing?
They cancelled it. Due to "political pressure".
...My thoughts and comments on this issue will remain in my head!
